Today is my 17 yr Valversary!!. Mitral-mechanical, Aortic-mechanical, Tricuspid-bovine all 3 valves (hat trick) were installed at MGH in Boston during a 9 hour surgery. I have never felt better. I work out 6 days a week and eat pretty healthy. For all of you out there with concerns and worries about living normal lives after heart surgery, I am here to tell you, you can have a normal life. The ticking is a bit loud at times but I use it as a conversation piece and people are amazed by it. I don't let my heart issue dictate my life, I just go with it.

Congratulations on #17. I notice that you and I both joined this group a week apart in 2007. You have one heck of a "support story" to tell. Please keep coming around.

So, your valves are getting ready to graduate high school. Love these types of stories. Congratulations.
